Research Interests

My research focuses on material science as spin materials. These compounds are likely to be present in two different magnetic states and it is possible to switch from one state to another by the action of an external disturbance as temperature, light, pressure, magnetic and electric field. The spin transition in these materials causes dramatic changes in the electronic and structural properties, making them potential candidates for several applications as sensors, actuators, high density data storage.

My works focus on the spatio-temporals aspects of the spin transition on single crystals revealed by optical microscopy Simulation of the spin transition at the nanoscale to highlight the effects of confinement and interface.
